Saya Gray — “IF THERE’S NO SEAT IN THE SKY (WILL YOU FORGIVE ME???)”
This single from Canadian-Japanese musician Saya Gray is the first of two tracks released from her highly-anticipated debut record “19 MASTERS.” It exquisitely sets the table with dazzling production and slick vocals. “The song was an inner dialogue of my mental state at the time, shoving myself into a box of what I felt I had to be in order to thrive,” said Gray.
Built to Spill — “Gonna Lose”
“Gonna Lose” comes from Built to Spill’s first new album in seven years. “When the Wind Forgets Your Name” is due out on Sept. 9 via iconic Seattle label Sub Pop. The veteran Northwest rock band sounds as relevant as ever here, propelled forward by a wall of fuzzy guitar reverb. The album was produced by founding member Doug Martsch and mixed with artist Lê Almeida duo João Casaes, and Josh Lewis, whom the band collaborated with during a Brazilian tour.
Naima Bock — “Giant Palm”
Former Goat Girl member Naima Bock has recently emerged as a compelling solo artist. Her debut album “Giant Palm” comes out on July 1. The record’s title track leans on the sonic synergy between Bock’s vocals and the instrumentation provided by producer Joel Burton. “We named the album after this song as it was the one that most reflected our collaboration as musicians and the innocence and freedom that characterized the making of the record,” Bock explained.
